BlackHistory TimesOfWar


Each year, members of the Senate Democratic Black Caucus release a video for Black History Month. The goal of this year's video is to honor the centennial of the end of the First World War in 1918, and to discuss the true meanings and challenges of this international struggle and its aftermath.

This year’s theme aims to consider, past and present, the specific and unique issues faced by African Americans in times of war, including veterans’ experiences when they returned home, opportunities for advancement during wartime and the roles of civil rights and Black liberation organizations.
